The Train Kept-A-Rollin'

Written by Bradshaw/Kay/Mann
I caught a train, met a dame
She was a hipster, we kind looked the same
She was pretty, from New York City
I'm walkin' down that old fair lane
I'm in heat, I'm in love
But I just couldn't let her go

Well, get along, sweet little woman get along
On your way, get along, sweet little woman get along
On your way
With a heave and a ho
But I just couldn't tell her so

We made a stop in Albuquerque
She musta thought I was a real cool jerk
Got off the train, and put her hands up
Lookin' so good I couldn't let her go
But I just couldn't tell her so

        I said, train kept a-rollin' all night long
        Train kept a-rollin' all night long
        Train kept a-rollin' all night long
        Train kept a-rollin' all night long
        With a heave and a ho
        But I just couldn't tell her so
